We need to fix the fact that 38 Ohio counties—over 1/3 of our state—are in the incorrect peer group to the state’s advantage. These 38 counties are being paid less than their similar counterparts, which makes it much more difficult for them to make up any ground in improving access to quality. Funding quality in Ohio cannot be achieved without addressing this significant gap first.
If this accounting injustice is fixed, children in these 38 counties will have the funds they deserve to increase their access to high-quality early childhood education programming. Click your district below to learn about how this issue is kids in your area.
